There should be a word for once-great Sci-Fi properties that have been run into the ground and ruined…something like a “droperty” or “Sci-Tired.” Something like that… only wittier. Anyway, if there was such a word, the prime example of it would be the Alien franchise, which because of all the Aliens vs. Predator drek has completely fallen off most people’s radar.
That’s why there’s such anticipation for original Alien director Ridley Scott’s return to the property with his upcoming prequel. The big news now is that the prequel will be shot in 3D, which is actually not big news because every film these days are coming out in that format…I think at this point even people’s home movies are going to 3D.
But even bigger news is that Scott will be doing two prequels…which will lead back into the first Alien film. Heck, he could make an Alien film that’s just Ripley sleeping for 57 years and It’d still be light years better than AvP.
